I was in an accident about a month ago (hit by a car as I crossed the street from sidewalk to sidewalk while biking home). I was knocked unconscious for a brief period and woke up to cops around me looking at me with flashlights. I was asked if I wanted to go to the ER in the ambulance and I... Read more »
If I join the military as a JAG, I am required to serve there for four years. In the long term, I want to be a federal judge. However, will spending four years as a JAG hurt my chances of becoming a federal judge given that I will be four years behind in regards to clerking for judges compared to... Read more »
Maybe the best person to pose your question to could be a former JAG. But your question remains open for four weeks. Given the high regard for the program because of its selection process, many would see it as a strong accomplishment. Some might see the fact that you would probably be working with...Read more »
My neighbor and i reside in an HOA and feel we are being subject to undue scrutiny and baseless complaints from a couple who live on a parcel adjacent to ours but who do not have membership in the HOA. These people are causing needless problems complaining about us for really no reason, but are... Read more »
You must find out whether your city has a process for petitioning to place a referendum on the ballot (also called initiative petition), and if so, what the petition requirements are (method, number of signatures needed, time restrictions, etc.). I would start out by calling the City Clerk's...Read more »
A Texas attorney should advise, but your question remains open for two weeks.

Her next court date isn't for another month and a half. She was on ankle monitor at time the crime happened and also there's a video of the couple that actually did it. She doesn't need to sit in jail any longer for something we never did. And what kind of legal action can we take... Read more »
Not sure of your problem. But you need to try to get the License at another DOS facility. Otherwise you will need a very competent, and expensive, attorney to file an administrative action. That action could take at least a year, prior to appeals. Getting a blow meter for a little while...Read more »
The officers had pulled out of a road/driveway about 1/4 mile or so ahead of me. One pulled off to the left in a gravel spot and the other in a small parking lot by a stop sign. When I approached the intersection the first officer on the left turned on his lights. So I pulled over out of the way.... Read more »

Once your license is suspended or revoked in one state, no other state will issue you a license until you reinstate your privilege in the state where you’re suspended or revoked.

The answer to your question is "yes, it is legal." That is because you did not have more than one deferred judgment within the 10 years before committing the crime that led to you receiving the deferred judgment in June 2020. The relevant statute reads as follows:
i entered the open line while the opposite line was closed at work zone in Faribault mn then police officer stop me and got picture on my driver license, said to me we will send you a ticket to you mail? is it a serious ticket or warning ?
It sounds like the are citing you for something. They do not generally mail warnings to someone. You will likely receive a citation at the address on your license. It would be wise to speak to an attorney to see if you can keep this off of your record.
Your question remains open for two weeks - there's no guarantee that all questions are picked up. But you could try reposting under Employment Law, where you might have better chances of an attorney who deals with these types of situations seeing your question. This looks like it's more...Read more »
I work for the Feds. At my particular agency, local (Calif) leadership is contemplating rules for staff return to the office at the end of this month (August). We've all (<50) been telecommuting since mid-March. It's loosely being proposed that those with children... be permitted to... Read more »
Would it be discriminatory? Yes. Any time someone is treated differently than others, it is discrimination. Is it unlawful? No. Having children at home is not a protected class under any protective statutes.
My driver's license is expired. I tried renewing online and was told I needed to show a copy of my birth certificate. I do not have a "valid" copy of a birth certificate. For those who are not aware, the Florida DMV is currently in the same state of collapse as most of their other... Read more »
